Ways to Give

Other Ways to Give

You can support the mission and ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church in many ways. Whether you decide to make a monthly gift, an annual gift, or a planned gift, your generosity has a tremendous impact on the lives of those we touch around the world.

Gifts to the Covenant can be made online now with a credit card or by contacting the Office of Advancement at (773) 784-3000.

For gifts to support Covenant mission and ministry, please make checks out to “Evangelical Covenant Church” and include on the memo line the area(s) you would like to support. Please send checks for Covenant gifts to the following address:

The Evangelical Covenant Church
Mission Advancement
PO Box 773420
Chicago, IL 60677-3420

For gifts to Paul Carlson Partnership, please make checks out to “Paul Carlson Partnership” and send to the following address:

Paul Carlson Partnership
PO Box 773457
Chicago, IL 60677-3420

Many companies encourage employees, their families, and retirees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. Matching gifts can double, or even triple, your impact on the mission and ministry of the Covenant. Consult your Human Resources office to find out if your employer has a matching gift program and what steps are necessary to enroll in that program.

Gifts of securities can be a strategically effective way to support the Evangelical Covenant Church. Staff members at the Covenant Trust Company are available to provide more information on this process. You can contact them at (847) 583-3200.

Tax-free gifts to qualified charities can be made directly from your IRA. A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) allows an IRA holder to send a donation directly to a public charity, and not have the distribution included on your tax return as ordinary income. A QCD allows individual taxpayers 70½ years of age or older to donate up to $100,000 per year to eligible charities including colleges, universities, independent private schools, and ministries from their traditional IRA tax-free.* This donation goes straight from the IRA to the charity. For traditional IRA owners who must take a required minimum distribution (RMD) from their IRA each year, the QCD provision is an opportunity to meet the RMD requirement while minimizing the effect on their taxable income. A qualified charitable distribution is a great way to positively affect your tax situation while also helping you achieve your charitable goals. Give us a call, we’d be happy to show you how.*Qualified charitable distributions are not available for 401(k) or Roth IRA accounts.

Your monthly support of the Evangelical Covenant Church provides regular and predictable funding for ECC ministry opportunities and projects that are transforming lives daily. It is an easy and affordable way for individuals to make their support go further both locally and globally. When you give monthly, you join a special group of people reaching out each month to provide prayer and support for the mission and ministry around the world.

A gift made in memory or in honor of a relative, friend, missionary or pastor is a thoughtful way to recognize an individual’s life and their service to God’s mission around the world.To make an honorary gift, send a letter indicating the purpose of your gift as well as the name and address of the honoree. For memorial gifts, if a memorial fund has not already been established, you should note on your check the name of the honoree and include the name and address of his/her next of kin so that we can properly notify their family of the gift.

Proper planning can help you and your family realize the greatest benefits from your gifts to the mission and ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church. This involves choosing the best combination of assets and vehicles to accomplish your charitable, financial and estate planning objectives. Our knowledgeable and experienced Gift Planning staff through the Covenant Trust Company is available to assist you and your professional advisors in determining which plan will best meet your needs and objectives.

For planned giving, please contact Covenant Trust Company.
